Osteopathic Manipulations Q & A

What are osteopathic manipulations?

Osteopathic manipulations span a variety of treatments designed to remove what prevents your body from healing. These modalities focus on correcting your body’s form by using a hands-on approach — without surgery or invasive procedures. 

People of all ages and backgrounds can benefit from osteopathic manipulations. At Transformation Health & Wellness, Dr. Cortez-Sammons employs the manipulations to diagnose, treat, and prevent an array of conditions, ranging from menstrual pain to joint disorders. The manipulations involve moving your muscles and joints with techniques that include gentle pressure, stretches, and resistance.

What are the benefits of osteopathic manipulation?

The techniques can help to relieve muscle pain, promote healing, and increase your overall mobility. Osteopathic manipulation may help ease the symptoms of several health problems, including:

  • Low back pain
  • Asthma
  • Sinus disorders
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Migraines
  • Menstrual pain

Applying a specific amount of pressure to different areas of your body also may help:

  • Treat structural and tissue abnormalities
  • Relieve joint restriction and misalignment
  • Restore muscle and tissue balance

Dr. Cortez-Sammons also recommends the techniques of osteopathic manipulation to promote the overall movement of blood flow throughout your body.

What are the types of osteopathic manipulation?

Dr. Cortez-Sammons has training in several effective techniques, including:

  • Osteopathic care
  • Spinal manipulation
  • Advanced muscular therapy and muscle energy
  • Craniosacral therapy

She recommends one or more of these modalities based on the nature of your health condition.

What is spinal manipulation?

Using moderate amounts of force, Dr. Cortez-Sammons assesses the orientation of your spine and makes adjustments as needed to realign your spine on a natural path. Many studies have shown that spinal manipulation and realignment can alleviate back pain and other ailments. 

What is advanced muscular therapy and muscle energy technique?

Advanced muscular therapy relieves muscle tension by rubbing out the source of your pain. This therapy is similar to a massage but provides you with more optimized care.

Muscle energy technique employs the strength of your own muscles to help realign your bones in a safe and gentle manner. 

What is craniosacral therapy?

With this technique, Dr. Cortez-Sammons works on the top and bottom of your spine, which are known as the cranium and sacrum. Restoring balance in these areas may minimize headaches, postpartum depression, and digestive problems, among other ailments.
